Insane, Fascist, and Satanic

More from NedLudd, continuing the previous discussion:

I've spent most of my life time reading contracts and documents, you advocated torture by exclusion of a group, unilaterally decided by the Bush Adm. Torture any way you slice it Peter. You are not too old to sign up for the paramilitary companies and I too care about our military. You see I come from the camp that you adequately plan, staff and execute the plan. This war has seen none of that, just incompetence which reduces the effectiveness of our forces and depletes of our men and materials for an unthought, botched plan. How do we look to the rest of the world, Peter? I attended grad school at the London School of Economics and am fortunate to have very educated friends through-out the globe. Peter, they ask me two things, just two things, have you Americans gone insane or are the Republicans turned fascist/satanic? So are you going to call me a traitor now?

ME: You can tell that NedLudd has spent a lot of time reading contracts and documents. It explains his ability to focus on a single idea, without jumping from topic to topic.

If you grant government the power to do anything, such power has never, and will never, stay restricted for long. Any grant of power grows and grows; such is the pattern of every single grant of government power that you can name. And it will be precisely the same with government-sanctioned torture.

Comment above assumes:

1. Government has sanctioned torture.

2. Government has been granted the power to do anything.

False and false.

Just a question concerning NedLudd. Does "attending" grad school in london mean he never actually graduated?

Just wondering...
